Re: 25-Started Invisalign with Acceldent

Good luck! If your ortho didn't recommend this, use your Acceledent at night when you won't be taking your aligners out for a solid 8 hours. I think that really helped me blast through my treatment faster. :)

Re: How many attachments before you wish you had normal braces

My ortho wanted to put attachments on my teeth and I said "NO!" So he went back and changed my treatment plan. I made it through my whole treatment without attachments and am very happy with my results. If your ortho tries to use attachments, ask if it can be avoided. It may take longer to get throu...

Re: Poll: Did You Have An Allergic Reaction to Invisalign?

I had no allergic reaction and would recommend Invisalign! It was a bit pricey but overall I found the experience to be much better than braces (which I had in middle school, I'll never not wear my retainers again!).

Re: anyone used an acceledent?

[quote="Pixelada"]My orthodontist wants to charge me $1200 for the Acceledent! I think that is quite pricey considering what other people have paid. Can I get it from another orthodontist? Will my orthodontist even treat me with it if I get it somewhere else? Is it worth it to spend $1,200 on top of...

Re: Is there anything you can do to speed your treatment up?

Definitely ask about Acceledent. Not everyone is a candidate but if you are, it can cut your treatment time in half (which it did for me, yay!).

Re: What did you pay for your treatment?

Around $7500. My treatment was Invisalign, 26 trays total plus an Acceledent device. Just took another hit of $850 for a lifetime worth of retainers.

Re: A Less Expensive Alternative to Acceledent: BitePod20

Does it work as well as Acceledent? I've heard it doesn't work quite as well but would love more information so I can recommend it over Acceledent in the future (Acceledent was expensive as heck).

Re: How long is your estimated treatment time?

My treatment time was one year but the time was cut in half because of Acceledent (which was awesome!).

Re: anyone used an acceledent?

Your story sounds exactly like mine! I'm sitting on a brand new Acceledent that was a replacement for the first one I used and I'd love to sell mine. Did you have any luck selling yours?
